Customer Reviews

Excellent paper, poorly managed

I have been a long time subscriber to the NYT and regrettably just cancelled my digital subscription. Although it's an outstanding newspaper, I can't tolerate the increasing number of animated advertising. I tried to ignore them, but today the animation was accompanied with audio that played automatically when I opened an article, and that I couldn't ignore! I don't understand, why have a staff of talented journalists only to subvert their efforts with childish distractions competing with content - "A House Divided." That issue aside, the app ran flawlessly on my iPad 2 and my wife's Mini 1. The app is customizable and articles can be saved for later. The news is effectively organized and many articles are in depth. If you don't mind the aggressive advertising, I can recommend this app.

Well-Designed Reader

I am a long-time subscriber to the NYT, and I still like reading from paper and ink, but the days when I carried a physical newspaper around with me are long gone. I carry my iPhone everywhere, and my iPad most places. They are just so damnably useful that they’ve become damnably indispensable. The NYT comes along for the ride in this app. It's a pretty good way to read the paper when I can't have real paper in my hands.

Really well done, but advertising detracts sometimes

The New York Times is the premier American newspaper, and this app does it justice. It's a joy to use, with good design and typography.

The cost of a subscription is fairly high, roughly a dollar a day. That's worth it for me most of the time. Unfortunately, there are also advertisements, some of which have been auto-playing videos—a definite negative. I've taken one star away for that.
